Terry Kirby selects the best bottles to buy

Sunday lunch

Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

A blockbuster wine from a single vineyard in the Maipo Valley demonstrating exactly how good Chilean wine-making has become – intense flavours of vanilla, smoke, liquorice, black fruits are given added depth from oak ageing. Perfect with beef or venison. £11.99, Sainbury's; £11.95, Hawkshead (minimum order of 12 bottles)

Midweek meal

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico 2012

The Verdicchio grape, native of Italy's Marche region, can sometimes be a little too lightweight, but here is full of rich summer-fruit flavours such as peaches, apples and pears, while remaining refreshing, with a good, dry finish. Drink with cod loin baked under a herb and caper crust. £7.49, Marks & Spencer

Bargain basement

Château de Triniac Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2011

The essence of the sun-drenched, full-bodied red wines of the South of France is encapsulated in this bottle, a combination of Carignan, Syrah and Grenache: spicy and satisfying, this punches way above its price range. Ideal with barbecued meats or Mediterranean vegetable dishes. £7.99 (each for two bottles as part of a purchase of six bottles; normally £9.99), majestic.co.uk
